I loved Atom loyalty program when it lasted... Watch 10 movies and get a free ticket.

This one, details TBD...

Now with instant/dual release or in the base of what's coming the new '45 day window' before a 'blockbuster' goes on streaming. I do think it's too bad though, I liked going to theatres from time to time (as I"ve gotten older, less and less mind you) --- none the less, sad that 'theatres' in general will go the way of the 'drive in'.
Theaters literally just announced today that they are getting 45 day exclusivity from Warner’s. Others will follow. So theaters are not dead. And I hope they never are. Still the best place for any “major” movie.

Ummmm ok - so go watch the latest drama movie over your highly compressed Netflix scrib at 15$ per month then?

You don’t like movie theaters. Lots do. Why would you even bother reading or commenting? Don’t get it.

That's exactly my point it used to be a 90-120 window, 45 days is not a long time. 'Major' releases are few and far between these days.

yeah but only if you want to save the extra money. I meant flexibility to go any day but not necessarily be forced to go every month when there are no good movies out. The $4.50 savings isn't worth it to lock into a subscription. They are hoping people sign up for the service and forget to use it

This is a discussion forum. People posts deals and others come in to discuss the value of the deal and vote on it.

I just pointed out that this is not really a deal and gave my reasoning. I go to the theaters to watch movies all the time (before COVID) but I think being forced to watch a movie every month to save $4.50 (or overpay by $0.50) is not a good deal. I don't want to be restricted to watch movies on their terms.

I would be interested if this was like MoviePass where you got unlimited movies for $10/month. THAT was a deal! This is cold.

Why would you go to a discussion forum not to discuss the deal lol. Are we all supposed to agree like some sort of circle jerk echo chamber? What is even the point of having comments on here if not to talk about the good and bad?

You are not being forced to do anything. It's just a subscription. Do you force yourself to listen to an album a day on Spotify? Spend an hour on Netflix a day? Buy something on Amazon every week?

A subscription is convenient, flexible, and optional. It's not necessarily good value depending on when and how you use it.

The weirdest thing about this offer is the $20 tier for me. Even after discounting the free movie ticket for $14.50, you pay ~5.50$ upfront to get some more points per year, which seems hardly worth it for literally anyone. Based on the Scene earning rate, we're talking about 7.5% instead of 5% back in points here, so on a regular admission ticket that's less than $0.40 bonus. That's over 1 movie a month just to break even at the end of the yead. At that point you could have just gotten the monthly club membership and saved way more money, with the flexibility to cancel monthly instead of investing into 12 months upfront.

I really don't know who this mid tier is targeting, and I'm even more surprised that the movie club tier doesn't even include the same perk just to make it look slightly more attractive. My guess is that they are prepared to give that membership tier away for free during promo periods, or with the purchase of specific combos or deal. Then they can advertise "$20 value" when it really is a negligible cost for them and is likely to boost future sales on tickets.

Because last time I checked posters were still free to evaluate the quality of the products for these deals, without others being butthurt about it. It's a discussion forum, not an advert for the cinemas. I personally prefer classic Hollywood and arthouse cinema, something that Netflix has at least a modicum of. But no one's stopping you from subscribing to this "hot deal" to watch the latest cookie-cutter flicks for teeny boppers.

Just think for a moment if this was your business and you witnesses MoviePass burn to the ground in bankruptcy. Would you want to do unlimited movies for $9.99/month? Is 1 movie a good subscription? no, I think it should have included at least 2, maybe 3 but wanting unlimited movies for $9.99/month doesn't make any business sense. It's a different business model than netflix or Spotify.

Is it really discussing the value of the product when you are really just here because you hate superhero movies?
We don't know, so it's possible. And it's possible, so it's probably probable.

Isn't it possible to hate superhero movies, while at the same time disliking most other cheap thrillers churned out by Hollywood? The two things are not exclusionary, but they do go together, with obnoxious cinema kids, like peanut butter and jam.

As much as I like that it will still save *some* money, it is still nowhere near the Cineplex club in terms of benefits

Cineplex offers the same 20% off concessions, points on purchases, and one free regular ticket, AND:
9.99$ for any other tickets, including up to two per show time, and three per day. Plus discounts on games and rec room stuff.

When it comes to being a pass, the Landmark one helps you with just one admission, while cineplex keeps racking up savings the more you visit. In terms of being a "pass", cineclub is more legit than extras.

Honestly a $25 unlimited pass for films in theatre are what's needed to bring people back to theatres. They would make money off the gross prices of pop/popcorn anyhow.

You might have missed this in the Cineplex Thread.

If it's truly a hot deal it wouldn't be buried, and the mediocre deals would be the ones that get buried. Unless people keep posting how bad the deal is in the mediocre threads and end up bumping it up.

So not forcing you to watch a movie each month
considering cineclub allows banking they are basically forced to do it also. honestly seems pretty good since you can go as a pair every 2 months

The only sorting where a thread could get buried is the default one, latest post goes to the top. The other sorting method shouldn't affect the "hot deal" ones.
Views, Score, Replies, would have the hot deals be at the the top.
